In brief: No special diet

You do not have to modify diet with vaginal metronidazole.
I would recommmend condom use while using, but you can resume sexual activity at your convience.

In brief: Some things

When using metronidazole, you should avoid alcohol.
As far as intercourse, i generally tell my patient's to avoid it for about a week to give the infection time to clear up.
